Hi Folks,

Since noone has started a discussion here, I thought I might as well kick one off. Last year a rode Greyhound busses from New York City to New Orleans (stopping in Philadelphia and Raleigh, NC, along the way). I'm an Australian budget traveller, and thought riding Greyhound would be a good way to see some of America.

I wrote extensively about this trip on my blog www.compleattraveller.blogspot.com (and I do mean extensively), so if anyone is planning a bus trip across parts of the USA in particular, you might want to check them out.

The first post can be found here:


Despite reading many online horror stories about interstate bus travel, especially using Greyhound, I had no major problems at all during my trip, and enjoyed the experience. I would even consider doing a much longer and more involved bus trip if my schedule allowed - possibly using a 30 or 60 day pass.

Anyway, gotta bus to catch.

See you down the road, sometime.

I enjoyed your blog, Jim. Looked at it because I'm about to undertake a 7.5-hour bus trip. Not quite as big a deal as the one you took, but it'll be the longest one I've taken in years, so you helped me warm up.
Hi Ed, Thanks for the positive feedback about my blog. I hope your trip goes as smoothly as mine did.
